I have just returned from the Alpha Quandrant ... and if this means nothing to you, well, those people might not mean much to you either.
But to the Trekkies and Trekkers from near and far, myself included, they mean unforgettable moments: on screen or live... just like during the last days at FedCon 25 in Bonn.
Being just slightly older than Star Trek, I might as well admit that the stories these humans/(famous) actors told have left their marks in my lives and to see and hear them in person is a great way to be inspired so that - perhaps - I can pass on this inspiration in another media project.
Bill Shatner ... who would have guessed that he is, in so many more ways, a real-life Denny Crane?
George Takei brought tears to my eyes. His life: Japanese Internment, Asian model minory overgeneralization, gay pride and his desire to beat his grandma's record of 104 years of age. Go George!
Marina, Marina, Marina...Queen of Conventions and wow, this woman has got the power, sharp tongue and (b)all(s).
Dominic/Lt. Reed's (not so) stiff upper (British) lip: let loose every time.
And no comment on the new Dr. McCoy: Missed his panel but got his autograph. Yes, fan girl ...
By the way, I love those fans in their ingenious ways of celebrating popular culture. I will upload a few pictures soon but let it be heard:
There is no shame in being a fan. Wore my blue dress with pride...
Thank you, Star Trek. Hope you live long and prosper. _\\//
